Hello everyone. My name is Yanase, who has been appointed President Director since April 2018.
Presently, technologies such as AI and IoT are bringing rapid changes to the industry, and a time of major structural revolution is now upon us. As such, the business environment surrounding our company is undergoing significant changes, including our main business area, Mobility. We will consider these changes in the environment as both a risk and an opportunity, bringing new ideas and actions to come up with new business models that are more suited to the society.
Nevertheless, we will never forget the DNA of Toyota Tsusho Group, the "Toyotsu Group Way," namely Genchi, Genbutsu, Genjitsu (On site, Hands on, In touch); Team Power; and Shokon (Passion for Business). In other words, we must work together as one in the way like Toyota Tsusho always do, and aim to be a company that creates new value and contributes to the creation of a prosperous society.
TTI’s slogan for 2019 is “Have a clear Plan and Take your Action.” It means that we will clarify our Destination in terms of both direction and time, and then put it into Action. Together with Toyota Tsusho Group companies in Indonesia, we will contribute to the development of Indonesian society in the fields of Metals/Global Parts and Logistics/Automotive/Machinery, Energy & Project/Chemicals and Electronics/Food & Consumer Services.
Next year is the 30th anniversary of our company as a local subsidiary. Therefore, I would like to express my deep appreciation and gratitude to all the stakeholders who have supported the development of our company so far, and thank you for your continued support and encouragement.
